The years after the millennium showed continued decentralisation. This trend took a sharp turn after 2010 and by 2012 the central government became a stronger single public funder than the regional and local sources cumulatively. A part of the explanation is the restructuring in the museum sector, whereby the state took charge of many regional and municipal institutions.
In the absence of available statistics in the country, one must resort to Eurostat for the following data.
